When you think of bridal jewelry, engagement rings and wedding bands are obviously the first two pieces to come to mind. But alas, on your wedding day (and for all of your bridal events leading up to it, like your engagement party, bridal shower, bachelorette, and rehearsal dinner) you’ll need a little something more to accent your perfect wedding dress: jewelry! If you’re a modern bride in search of distinctive, eye-catching baubles, enamel jewelry is one of the biggest jewelry trends this year, with loads of options on offer. There's everything from bold earrings to sleek bracelets and delicate necklaces.

Bridal accessories enhance your wedding day look, giving it that extra special feel. But a sad truth remains: Shoes often go unseen and bags are swiftly flung to the side post–photo op. This makes jewelry an absolute essential—it’s the one accessory that stays with you all day or night! No matter your style of wedding dress, a glittering chandelier earring, set of glitzy rhinestone (or diamond!) studs, or a modern pearl piece is a stunning, super timeless way to accent your gown. If you’re hooked on tradition, you may even opt for a piece of jewelry to serve as your something blue. But for modern and more fashion-forward brides, trendy enamel jewelry feels especially fresh against a wedding dress.

Enamel jewelry dates to ancient Greece and was developed to add color to jewelry without gemstones. While many of today’s pieces are less ornate, much artistry goes into enamel jewelry, whether you tend toward bold and statement-making or delicate pieces. Because enamel pieces are so intricate, they can be a bit pricey—though these special styles are certainly worth the investment.

If you’re one for a bit of shine, diamonds, gemstones, and crystals pop in an enamel setting while minimal, metalworked pieces stand out with the sleekest of lines. If your bridal vibe skews bohemian, enamel flowers are beautiful in the form of earrings while two-tone pieces feel especially modern (and a little edgy, too!).

If you’re getting married in 2019, ahead, scroll through 23 pieces of enamel jewelry that will give your wedding day look (and bridal wardrobe) a cool and contemporary feel.
